Ecuador: Social Movements’ Contributions to Communication Rights,
Agencia Latinoamericana de Información (ALAI), Ecuador € 4,820 Ref. 1927
ALAI works for the democratisation of communication through training and advising social movements in Latin America and the Caribbean to develop their communication strategies, and through carrying out participatory research and studies, and has generated and participated in several initiatives for the advancement of communication rights. One of the lessons of the Latin American and Caribbean process calling for change in communication has been the need to recognise that its potential can only be fully realized when communication rights become a broadly based aspiration. However, the proposals and initiatives in this topic by social organisations that do not have communication as their central activity are not widely known. Given that their broad participation in the search for communication rights is essential, this project will help to collect and disseminate their contributions as an element in the construction and consolidation of a movement for communication rights. It will compile and publish a panorama of initiatives in several social sectors related to the affirmation, claiming and exercise of communication rights from the perspective of social movements. This may help other social movements, communication networks and leaders to formulate their own proposals and initiatives related to communication rights.
